An appropriate battery of tests of visuospatial function was given to 10 adult patients with multiple system atrophy, to 10 adult patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease, and to 18 adult normal control subjects. Members of the 3 groups were matched for age, educational level, and Verbal IQ. Comparison of results showed that, unlike the patients with Parkinson's disease and the control subjects, patients with multiple system atrophy were impaired in their ability to discriminate between angles and to match angles but showed no other visuospatial deficts. These results indicate a need for further study of this matter on a larger scale.
